Posted by mcm0704 on June 22, 2018 |

Now that I am back living in a neighborhood and not out in the country anymore, this excerpt from my humorous memoir, A Dead Tomato Plant And A Paycheck, is particularly meaningful. I did like my country home that was surrounded by pine trees, so there was no real lawn to deal with. The rest […]

Posted by mcm0704 on June 15, 2018 |

Last weekend I was in Austin for my granddaughter’s graduation celebration. She opted for a party at home with some of her friends from school, as well as several adult friends that she enjoys. So it was a casual, fun party, and I am so glad I was able to go and share in the […]

Monday Morning Musings

Posted by mcm0704 on November 13, 2017 |

On the Brink of War?

Posted by mcm0704 on October 13, 2017 |

Before the heart of this blog post, I’ll share a picture of one of my cats. Hermione is so hard to photograph as she always runs from the camera, I had to snap this one of her basking in the sunlight the other morning. It was a chilly morning here in East Texas, and all the […]
